Chili Lime Pizza

We had some Wegmans Lime Chipotle Chicken Sausage in our refrigerator, and we wanted pizza, so we figured we’d build around those flavours. To make it happen, we built a sauce out of pureed onion, chipotle chili powder, and lime to double down on the profile.

Time: 45 Minutes (more if making your own dough)


  • Pizza crust or dough. We suggest making one of our Pizza Crust Recipes…we used our Cauliflower Pizza Crust recipe for this one.
  • Lime Chipotle Chicken Sausage (fully cooked)
  • Red Bell Pepper
  • Baby Kale
  • Shredded Mozzarella
  • An Onion
  • Lime Juice
  • Chipotle Chili Powder


  • Place your pizza stone in the oven, and preheat to 415 degrees F.
  • Puree your onion, and sautee it in a pan until the liquid is gone (15 minutes or so). Part way through, add your chipotle chili powder and a little lime juice. Stir to combine. (This is pretty potent stuff when you start cooking it, so turn a fan on, and have some tissues nearby…you will cry).
  • While your sauce cooks, slice your sausage and other veggies.
  • When your sauce is nearly done, remove the hot pizza stone, sprinkle a little cornmeal on it, and shape your crust directly on the hot stone with a rolling pin (be careful not to touch the stone…not admitting that I speak from experience).
  • Poke little holes in your crust (to avoid large air pockets), and put your dough in the oven for about 5 minutes to crisp up the bottom.
  • Remove your dough, spread your sauce, add your toppings, and sprinkle on your cheese.
  • Place back in the oven for 20 or so minutes until your crust is crispy to your liking, and your cheese is melted and just starting to brown.
  • Plate, devour, and enjoy!
